Listen carefully! ’Allo ’Allo is back by popular demand following Grantham Dramatic Society’s successful staging of the comedy in 2006.

The TV show was a big hit for the BBC in the 1980s and ’90s and has enjoyed numerous popular repeats since then.

It also proved a popular choice for GDS when it staged ’Allo ’Allo seven years ago among other TV hits including Blackadder and Fawlty Towers.

The show about René Artois, the café owner who gets caught up in the antics of the French Resistance during the war, proved irresistible for 

Society chairman Helen Pack said: “We regularly conduct surveys about plays that people in Grantham would like to see us perform. There have been so many people over the years saying they wanted to see us perform ’Allo ’Allo again that we couldn’t resist doing it. It’s such a fun play to put on.”

Hapless René is caught between the Germans, the Resistance, his wife and two mistresses. Can he keep everyone happy and save the café and his own life?

Director Mary O’Neill said: “This is a fantastic comedy with all the favourite characters and catchphrases, including Herr Flick of the Gestapo, Michelle of the Resistance and even ‘The Fallen Madonna with the Big Boobies’!”

The show will be staged from Wednesday, November 13, to Saturday, November 16, at Grantham Guildhall Arts Centre at 7.30pm.

Tickets cost £8/£7 for the Wednesday performance and £9/£8 for the other performances.
